On the VirtuCache User Interface, in the ‘Configure Devices’ tab, if the SSD does not show up in the drop down, it is possible that the SSD has partitions on it or the partition table is corrupt.
Now assuming that the device identifier for the SSD is naa.60019b90c2dfa9001a25237424712696
Run the below commands from esxcli
1. partedUtil getptbl /dev/disks/naa.60019b90c2dfa9001a25237424712696

If the partition table shows up as corrupt, run the below command to fix it.

2. partedUtil fix /dev/disks/naa.60019b90c2dfa9001a25237424712696
Will fix the partition table

3. then again run partedUtil getptbl /dev/disks/naa.60019b90c2dfa9001a25237424712696
This should now result in an output like below:
gpt
194409 255 63 3123183616
1 34 3123183581 EBD0A0A2B9E5443387C068B6B72699C7 linuxNative 0

4. Now delete partition like below
partedUtil delete /dev/disks/naa.60019b90c2dfa9001a25237424712696 1

This will delete the partition on the SSD that was using up all the space on the SSD and the SSD should now show up in the VirtuCache Manager user interface
